Are you an Artist? Are you looking for a Summer Residency Programme?

Summer Residency Programme

Salary / Fee: 
£150 materials fee / studio space provided in-kind
Closing Date: 
Friday, 30 June, 2017
Following the success of OVADA’s 2016 Summer Residency, we are offering free studio space and a small materials fee for Oxfordshire artists to take part in this year’s programme in August 2017. OVADA will select up to 4 artists at any stage of their career, including recent graduates.
The aim of this programme is to provide uninterrupted time and space for the development of new work in a stimulating creative environment. Residencies can be developed around a particular project, used as a way to experiment with new ways of working or to explore working on a larger scale in OVADA’s unique warehouse space.
The opportunity is open to contemporary visual artists in Oxfordshire demonstrating a serious commitment to their practice. This is a chance for artists to work independently in an alternative space. Priority will be given to creative practitioners who do not currently have a studio/production space and to those who can maximise usage of the space during the residency period.
The residency will provide time and space for research, experimentation, reflection, dialogue and creative risk-taking. It is important to note that there is no prescribed outcome for this residency; the opportunity is solely focused on the development of the artist’s practice rather than a completed artwork.
Residencies will take place at OVADA warehouse in central Oxford (14A Osney Lane, Oxford OX1 1NJ). The warehouse space will be loosely divided into areas based on individual artist’s needs. Please note that these are open workspaces in view of other residency artists and building-users. We anticipate that artists will informally exchange their knowledge and experiences with each other and meet OVADA’s studio artists/team in order to make new contacts.
Artists will receive £150 towards the cost of their materials at the start of the project, paid upon invoice, and will also receive free Associate Membership for one year.
